Fundraising Manager

Will Keen

Born and raised in South Devon, Will has always had a passion for the South West. Following an extensive career in the self-catering travel industry working in Marketing and Operational Management roles with both local and national companies, Will joined the South West Coast Path Association in 2022 as our Impact Fundraiser, helping to build our legacy and in-memory giving programmes from the ground up, before being promoted to the role of Fundraising Manager in January 2024. Will’s role looks after our wide range of fundraising programmes, from community and challenge fundraising to philanthropy, whilst continuing to look after our legacy and in-memory programmes.

Charity and ‘giving something back’ have been at the heart of Will’s life since he was a child; he was a volunteer with St John Ambulance from the age of six, and helped to steer over 200 young people from across Devon through the covid-19 pandemic as District Youth Officer for Devon. He’s now devoted his full time to giving something back to the coastline which first drew his great grandparents to the area on holidays in the 1940s!

When he’s not raising vital funds to help maintain the South West Coast Path, you can find Will swimming in his local pool, watching the sunset over the Torbay coastline, or spending time with his partner Lucy anywhere from the Devon coast to the streets of Edinburgh.
